“Simple But Important Elements When Dealing With Change”
Transitioning from resistance to acceptance and successfully embracing change requires understanding and controlling thoughts, emotions and behaviors.
Transitioning from Resistance to Acceptance and Successfully Embracing Change
Often transitions are confronted with alternative processes and ideally, we select the process that provide us the most comfort and confidence. However, before we are able to successfully deal with a transitional situation there are two realisms common to all processes that need to be recognized.
“The only thing that does not change is change itself.”
“The only real constant in the world is change.”
These quotes, first stated by the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus support the premise that recognizing that change is a continuous process is the first step toward accepting it.
The journey from recognition to embracement requires:
Awareness of the energy behind our thoughts
Understanding our emotions
Knowing how we are acting and behaving
How well we control these three elements along the journey directly correlates to our success in dealing with change.
